A loan of $4,775 helped a member buying raw materials for making waragi, a local brew.


Charles' Group's story

Charles S. S. is a hard working and devoted 53-year-old man. He is married with 12 children aged from 29 to 10 years, of which 2 are still in school, and he also cares for 7 dependants, including grandchildren.

Charles has had a business selling waragi, a local brew, since 1984. His idea of getting loans was to help improve the quality of his waragi. The main challenges affecting his business are the debtors that take a long time to pay, the poor quality raw inputs in instances where he cannot afford to purchase the good ones, as well as a lack of charcoal because of the rainy season.

After having access to the loans, Charles is now able to make quality waragi, in addition to improving his customer care. He has a hope of ensuring that all his children attend school. He needs a loan to help purchase more raw materials like bananas, yeast, and firewood for making waragi. He is a member of the Bakyala Kwekulakulanya group in Lugazi.

In this group: Charles, Teddy, Betty, Aminah, Sarah, Deborah, Pross, Frista, Immaculate, Juliet, Allen, Halima*, John, Isaac, Abdul, Robert
